We would be delighted to welcome you to any of the rallies listed in this booklet. Our rallies are simply gatherings of Auto-Trail Owners’ Club members, for a weekend or longer, to promote friendship and enjoy common interests. If you have not rallied with us before, we would like to meet you on the rally field and show you what the Auto-Trail Owners’ Club is really about: friendly, helpful people coming together, meeting old friends and making new ones in a free and easy atmosphere.
Rally Stewards are ordinary club members who have volunteered their time and efforts to organise and run a rally. You are under no obligation to join in with any activities.
On arrival, you must report to the Stewards’ van, which should be clearly signed, and you will be shown where to park. Please do not just site yourself. You will be given any information about the rally and asked to pay the fee in CASH. You will also be shown the location of the drinking water tap, Elsan point and any other amenities. If there is no separate tap for drinking water and Elsan point, it is imperative that you do not fill your cassette directly from the drinking water tap, a small container should be carried for this purpose. Waste water should be emptied at a designated disposal point. If there are none on site, then pour the water around the hedges. Please do not let waste water discharge directly onto your pitch. Rubbish should be placed in the bins provided or taken home for disposal. Please use Recycling facilities where available.
On Sundays we often gather around the Stewards’ van for tea/coffee and biscuits and a raffle is usually held. Why not come along and join us? You will be assured of a friendly welcome.
You will see that, underneath some rally listings, we have suggested a possible follow-on rally. This is where the next rally is within reasonable travelling distance.
Please check the Rally Updates section in the club magazine and on the website <www.atocuk.com> for any additional rallies or changes to those published in this book.
Remember to display your windscreen sticker for the current year’s membership.
Rally costs include: (1) the Site Fee, negotiated with the site owner, which may include additional charges for hall hire, use of toilets, etc. (2) the Rally Fee, usually £2, which covers the rally plaques and other costs.
All prices shown in this booklet are indicative and may be altered at short notice before the rally starts. Therefore, please be aware that fees are subject to possible changes.
Our Rally Exemption Certificate allows our rallies to be attended by club members ONLY, and guests who accompany them in their van. One club member must stay with guests overnight.
Members may also invite day visitors to our rallies. Day visitors MUST report to the Rally Stewards on arrival, or as soon afterwards as possible. This is a safety requirement, so that all ralliers and their guests may be accounted for should there be an emergency on the site.
Please note that a small charge may be made if your visitors wish to join in anything arranged by the Rally Steward.
